6:01am
delay. let's go back to the desk. thank you, sal. we begin with our continuing coverage of the boston bombing case. one week ago today tragedy. two men made bombs that exploded at the boston marathon. four people are dead. one of those is the suspects. the other one continues to recover from wounds. and several injured in boston area. brian flores is in our newsroom with the events happening today. brian. >> reporter: the city of boston continues to move forward. they are calling it boston strong. but this morning there are questions in boston about the lone surviving suspect what charges he may face and why he and his brother created bombs. now the loan suspect remains in the hospital this morning. his condition is serious. we are hearing this morning as well, he is able to communicate by writing things down. he's having a tough time because of a self-inflicted gunshot wound during gun battle with police. he may also face charges today
6:02am
as well. one thing that is coming out of this today is the political battle on how to question him. authorities say he cannot be tried through military commission because he is an american citizen and it's still too early to see if there are lungs to terrorist organizations. >> it is really very clear to me that the course that can be taken you've got the high value interrogation group. they are skilled. they know how to do this. the miranda right can be read at a later time. >> reporter: lawmakers agree it's important to gather intelligence from him to save more american lives. that investigation continues. meantime the victims continue to mourn. this morning a private funeral for 29-year-old crystal campbell will be laid to rest just outside of boston. at 11:50 a.m. our time that is when a moment of silence will be held.

6:04am
in other ways. traffic ramps upstarting this morning due to the business week. and because of government budget cuts all air traffic controllers must take one day off every two weeks. that means most towers will lose one controller every day maybe more. planes will have to take off and land less frequently so not to overload the remaining controller ons duty. that translates to longer lines at the airport. folks here at sfo says the government should make cuts elsewhere. >> it's ridiculous that they furlough people when it's air traffic. these are the people that keep the planes not from hitting each other. >> reporter: yesterday sfo and ma theta reported no problems. but oakland did experience delays from flights out of l.a.. sources inside the air traffic control tower here at sfo said four workers were furloughed yesterday. meanwhile 100 contract towers
6:05am
in small airports across the country are scheduled to shut down in june. we have noticed only one plane has been canceled. it's a flight out of new york. we're not sure to the exact reason for that. it can have nothing to do. we will check on that for you and monitoring the screens this morning and let you know if we see any flight cancellations or delays. live from sfo i'm tara moriarty. time is 6:04. now we are hearing the frantic 911 calls made after that deadly explosion last week at a fertilizer plant in west texas. >> there was an explosion and our house all the windows were blown in. >> at least 14 people consider killed. 200 others were hurt. ten of those that were killed were first responders. >> listen to me. i got a nursing home and animal

6:07am
victims of gang violence, many end up at santa clara valley medical center where they try to get them out of the gang. >> we get in there in that little window, all of a sudden we have made an impact they that start to realize you know what, i almost lost my life but i have a chance to make some changes so i don't end up back here. >> the mayor's task force offers services and resources to get gang members back to work or school. 1 teenagers and young adults have given permission for a visit from the task force. we have more insight into the day tails and cost of the new san francisco 49ers stadium. fans can anticipate a $25 million electrical system that will allow 12,000 people to charge their cell phones at the same time. people can also fork out $500 to attend a joe montana autographed signing. or $150 to see coach jim

6:41am
pay because they are in the car i'm going to start remembering them now. >> right. maybe there is the incentive. good morning, everybody. let's take a look at what we have now. we have a new crash in san francisco i want to mention. northbound 101 near the 280 interchange. one car hit the wall there. it's causing slow traffic coming up from near candle stick. let's go out and take a look at commute at the bay bridge toll plaza. westbound. you can see traffic is moving along pretty well with no major problems. if you are driving in san francisco along northbound 101 that traffic still looks pretty good past the scene. so the crash we talked about was northbound 101 near 280 but up here near the 80 split it looks very nice. if you are driving in contra costa county the busiest traffic is on highway 4. we are seeing some slow traffic in pleasant hill. let's go to steve. sal, thank you. very calm conditions. very quiet conditions. cool for some. warm for others. it won't take long to warm up
6:42am
here. i still think yesterday was the warmest day. it will be close for some. there is a lot of fog roaring up the coast. it's not here yet. i think we see 70s and also mid 70s on the coast. 10:s to near -- 80s to near 90 inland. still some of that fog is coming down the coast. i know this. believe. coming down the coast and also coming up the coast. did i tell you about the weather man -- [ laughter ] southerly surge is what we call it. i think it will be into monterey. always the toughest call. highs today will be in the 70s to 80s for some. near 90s for others. really the key is we get a little bit of an offshore push but not much. mainly just high pressure. so high pressure holds its crown today. it will start to break down tomorrow but not before we have a way above average reading on the temps. 70s by the coast. possible records. they will be close.
6:43am
i think we will fall just short of some of these. today it will be close. need to get really about 89-90 on some of these. i just don't see that happening. it's certainly possible. but there are a few things that are going against it today. san francisco we'll go 75. i went 75 by noon and started a little bit of a cooling trend. i think some of that sea breeze kicks in. the fog is getting really close. a little low out here will play into our weather. that will really ramp up the fog but not today. sunshine wins out. there is 40s here. it's not as warm as some. if you get that easterly breeze, then temperatures will warm. generally the wind is calm. there are hints of a westerly breeze coming up in later. heading toward monterey peninsula with a little bit of that fog. once it makes its move and the water temps are really, really cold. yet another warm day on tap for many. maybe a late sea breeze by it.
6:44am
70s and 80s to near 90-degrees for some. oakland downtown 82. 84 san jose. cupertino is in there. menlo park 83. pacifica daly city 70. fog will be on the way back tuesday and for everyone on wednesday and thursday does look a little warmer. 6:43 is the time right now. google knows a lot about people and a lot of things. starting today or tomorrow that is almomo everyone will know a little bit more about google. fewer air traffic controllers and airports nation- wide could mean longer lines and waits for you. we'll tell you how furloughs could effect your travel plans. good morning. north and southbound 880 traffic looks good here in oakland. we'll tell you about the morning commute on a monday. ♪

career skies. not much of apres. it will be very, very warm inland. fog is being closer. that may play into a coastal forecast later today. temperatures above average. welcome back. goes to you. here's a quick look at some of the top stories we are following for you right now at 6:47. it's been one week since the boston marathon bombings. the governor of massachusetts wants everyone in the state to observe a moment of silence for
6:48am
those victims. the one minute attribute will be at 11:50 a.m. west coast time. that is the exact time the first bomb went off. today could be a real test of the effects of the sequester budget cuts. it's the first weekday since furloughs of air traffic controllers took effect. ktvu tara moriarty is joining us live to tell us how the furrows could effect sfo and airports all over the country. so far flights are running very smoothly. we haven't noticed any big delays at sfo. behind me you can see the tower. that is where the air traffic controllers are. there will be fewer of them on the clock this week. passengers are not happy about it. this morning traffic is ramped up due to the start of the business week. because of budget government all air traffic controllers must take one day off. most towers will lose one controller each day. maybe more. the faa has said that planes will have to take off and land less frequently so as not to overload the remaining controllers on duty.
6:49am
that will translate o potential longer lines at the airport. most pass injures we spoke to this morning say they are against the furloughs. >> congress needs to get their act together and maybe they need to give up some of their assistance that they seem to have so many of in washington. and stop bothering the normal every day people with cutting back here and there. >> reporter: yesterday sfo and san jose reported no problems. but oakland did experience some delays for flights out of los angeles. sources inside the air traffic control tower here said four workers were furloughed yesterday. and these furloughs are expected to last through september. pilot and airline organizations are suing the faa to stop the furloughs and urging the public to speak up if they experience the headaches and hassles as a result of these furloughs. we are going to be keeping an
6:50am
eye on all of the flights here. we'll let you know if you see any major delays or cancellations. live from sfo i'm tara moriarty. >> certainly people need to plan for that. 6:49 is the time. what else do we need to plan for as we head out the door in >> i have to turn all of this down. ask your question again. >> what do we need to plan for? >> i this i you can plan for -- i think you can plan for a delay at the toll plaza. which you are used to. traffic is moving along relatively well if you are driving here for this timeout morning. it's a 20-25 minute delay. i think people who drive this every day plan for it. just in case you don't, you will be sitting in it. unless you are in the car pool lane. also this morning highway 101 as you approach at 80 split. a car hit the wall there. it was a solo car accident and they are trying to get it out of the way. also we are looking at contra
6:51am
costa traffic. it looks okay. 80 slowing down from pinole to richmond already as you drive west toward the berkeley area. and slow traffic on 880 southbound as you drive past the winston avenue exit there is a accident there. let's go to steve. thank you. clear skies. not only over san jose but everybody. not much of a breeze. things have tailed off here most locations say calm. a little cool for some. i know cassie 43-degrees. it's a little cool by the coast under clear skies. fog is getting closer. it's moving up the coast. it's also offshore. it's being held in check by high pressure. although the one at the surface is not that strong anymore. still way above average. should be in the low 70s inland. upper 80s to near 90 degrees. san francisco should be closer to 63-64 they are way above that. i went to 65 at noon and dropped that. i don't think the fog will be there, but it will be fog.
6:52am
high pressure holds its crown a little low out here will play to southern california, central california. they will help the fog. but we need a little bit of an omph and that will not happen until tomorrow. 62 out of fairfield with a north wind. a little bit of an easterly breeze inland. kind of a component of a westerly. it is coming up the coast and tomorrow some coastal temperatures will drop a good 15 degrees temperature today sunshine and warm. maybe late sea breeze by the coast but inland probably won't matter. probably not record setting territory. we need to be close to 90 degrees. temperatures continue to be in the 80s away from the coast. upper 70s and low 80s near the bay. and 70 near the waters edge. inland temps start to come down. wednesday into thursday it
